Key HighlightsInternational scheme providers such as MasterCard, JCB and China UnionPay (CUP) are gradually making inroads into Iran. In December 2015, MasterCard announced plans to enter Iran market once sanctions were lifted. It launched a channel on instant messaging app Telegram, through which it sends posts in Persian to attract Iranian consumers. In February 2016, the Central Bank of Iran announced that JCB credit cards would be issued in the country from the second half of 2016. The increasing presence of international issuers and schemes is expected to bring more investment and competition into the Iranian payment cards market.
• Iranian banks were disconnected from the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) system in March 2012, due to international sanctions placed on Iran by the US as a result of its nuclear program. Banks in Iran were reconnected to the SWIFT system in February 2016, as the sanctions were lifted. This allows banks in Iran to resume cross-border transactions with foreign counterparts. This is anticipated to support the growth in the country’s cards and payments industry.
